Ghaziabad: A petrol pump employee was in critical condition Monday after three men on a motorcycle shot him when he refused to fill up fuel as they were without safety helmets.
Lal Singh was sent to a Delhi hospital after one of the three men on a motorcycle opened fire after he enforced official orders that fuel cannot be given to two-wheelers whose riders are without helmets.
The incident occurred at Banthala in Ghaziabad town, close to Delhi.
When the three insisted that he give them petrol, he refused saying at least one of them should be with a helmet.
Furious, the three forcibly took petrol from the fuel station and then shot the employee.
Lal Singh was warded in the Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital in Delhi with bullet injuries. His condition was critical, a police source said.
Police have registered a case of attempt to murder and are hunting for the three men, officer Gorakh Nath Yadav said.
